New Kia Sportage 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Increased cost for Toyota RAV4 rival

The Sportage has been dealt its second price rise in two months.

For the second time in two months, Kia Australia has increased the pricing of the Sportage mid-size SUV, this time alongside the release of its 2021 model (MY21).

All Sportage variants are $300 more expensive than before, with the SUV line-up now starting from $28,690 plus on-road costs for the S 2.0-litre petrol FWD and topping out at $48,190 for the GT-Line 2.0-litre diesel AWD (see full pricing table below).

A Kia Australia spokesperson told CarsGuide no corresponding changes have been made to the Toyota RAV4 rival’s standard specification for MY21, with its price rise due to exchange-rate pressures and the like.

As such, the Sportage is still offered in four grades: entry-level S, mid-range SX and SX+, and flagship GT-Line.

A 114kW/192Nm 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine is available in the S, SX and SX+, with the former two available with a six-speed manual or torque-converter automatic, while the latter only comes with two pedals. Either way, front-wheel drive is standard.

Conversely, the GT-Line is offered with a 135kW/237Nm 2.4-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine with the six-speed torque-converter automatic and all-wheel drive.

A 136kW/400Nm 2.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine is also available in all four grades. However, it exclusively comes with an eight-speed torque-converter automatic and all-wheel drive.
